He wrote: “I’m never somebody to post about going to the gym or what I’m training bla bla bla - perhaps because I feel a little embarrassed about doing it.

“Turns out training weights, having a good diet and not just doing cardio can make a difference to body and mind!”

Jamie said that he had been training with Shaun Stafford for the past few weeks and plans to continue his fitness journey.

The post gained a lot of positive attention from his fans and a few famous faces.
